Secret behind Their Enduring Marriage
Mann and Apatow got into a public argument outside a famous restaurant Katsuya in Los Angeles on October 25, 2019. As per Page Six's report, the couple was in a screaming match.
Following the discussion, both left the place in their Cadillac, and Mann slammed the car's door after entering the vehicle.
Then you get a call, like, 'What do you say? We saw you guys, that you were, like, debating something in a restaurant.' I was, like, really? Have you been married? Do you know what marriage is?
On a serious note, the director mentioned that fights were why their marriage was enduring. He implied how letting feelings out in a relationship was necessary to keep it wholesome.
Back in March 2017, the 53-year-old gushed about his lasting marriage even in an interview for Vice.
Apatow disclosed that he and Mann got up on Sunday morning, watched Oprah Winfrey's SuperSoul Sunday and tried to apply positivity in the life. But they would forget almost everything by the end of the week and watch a new episode every week.
